Ordet

Ordet is absolutely amazing. The combination of sublime camera work and exceptional performances give it a real intensity. Whilst being very restrained in all aspects of its narrative, characterisation, visual compositions and structure, it attains an incredibly hypnotic and haunting style.

Ordet

“Ordet is absolutely amazing. The combination of sublime camera work and exceptional performances give it a real intensity. Whilst being very restrained in all aspects of its narrative, characterisation, visual compositions and structure, it attains an incredibly hypnotic and haunting style. Its images convey so much emotion in the characters by allowing their expressions to work in tandem with masterful framework, composition and lighting. A truly memorable work that will continue to resonate long after its seen.” read more

" Dreyer is another director from whom I really should see more films. This is on the top of almost every "best movies ever made" -list and there has to be some reason for it."

The Best of 50's (50 movies items)

" A farmer’s family is torn apart by faith, sanctity, and love — one child believes he’s Jesus Christ, a second proclaims himself agnostic, and the third falls in love with a fundamentalist’s daughter. Putting the lie to the term “organized religion,” Ordet (The Word) is a challenge to simple facts and dogmatic orthodoxy. Layering multiple stories of faith and rebellion, Dreyer’s adaptation of Kaj Munk’s play quietly builds towards a shattering, miraculous climax. Carl Th. Dreyer"
